Terrific Tuesday

Churchill's Tale of Tails by Anca Sandu is my latest favorite pig story.  I love pigs, they're cute, it's OK that they're fat, and they make an awesome noise.  
Churchill loves his tail, but he loses it.  That's when all the fun begins, he tries other tails and ends up loving those too, until he sees his tail on the head of a bird.  The bird understands and gives it back.  Churchill is happy with his own tail, again, most of the time.  
The pictures were rendered in Adobe illustrator by combining digital color with hand-drawn textures and shading.  The most fun about this story is its silliness with all the other tails.  Kids will love this.  And of course if you don't make some tails and try them out, right away, then something is wrong in your head.  I can't wait to share this in Storytime so we can pretend to wear these different tails.
